Queen's Club to host Davis Cup quarterfinal

LONDON -- Britain has chosen to play its Davis Cup quarterfinal series against France on grass at the Queen's Club.

The Lawn Tennis Association announced the venue for the July 17-19 World Group matchup on Tuesday.

It will be the first time Queen's has hosted Davis Cup play since 1990, when France beat Britain 5-0 in a World Group playoff.

Queen's hosts an annual grass-court tournament in the lead-up to Wimbledon.

Andy Murray has won Queen's three times and calls the venue a "great choice" for the Davis Cup.

Murray says "I've been playing at Queen's for 10 years now so I feel very at home there as do the rest of the British team."

Britain defeated the United States 3-2 in the first round, while France beat Germany 3-2.

It will be the first Davis Cup meeting between the two since 1992.
